Le-Petit-Pressigny

La Richardiere is well-placed for visitors wishing to soak up the beauty and heritage of the Loire region. As well as numerous pretty villages within a few minutes drive of our location, we also have many historic towns within easy reach.

Loches is a pretty, vibrant town just 25 minutes from La Richardière. The Logis Royal, which dates back to the Renaissance, overlooks the town from its hilltop position and is well worth a visit. On Wednesday mornings the historic town centre is filled by one of the loveliest markets in the Touraine.

Also, close at hand, is the town of Descartes. Birthplace of the famous philosopher and mathematician Rene Descartes. There is a museum dedicated to him in the very house in which he was born. For outdoor activities, visit the Parc de Loisir where you will find a park for smaller children, mini golf, several petanque courts, the local outdoor swimming pool, pretty gardens and the Canoe-Kayak club.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, the area is criss-crossed with many kilometres of footpaths through countryside and forest and cycle routes which follow the banks of the rivers Loire and Indre. La Richardière is also just a few kilometres away from the Brenne Natural Parc. Dotted with over one thousand lakes this is an exceptional location for both bird and plant life and home to wild boar, roe and red deer. There is much to do within the Parc area including walking, cycling, watersports at Bellebouche lake, bird and wildlife watching.

Throughout the region there are chateaux great and small within easy reach of La Richardiere. Both Amboise and Chenonceau are fascinating for day visits and, through the summer months, stage dramatic and engaging 'son et lumiere' shows in the evenings. A visit to Chateau du Chinon can be combined with a visit to the vibrant market held by the riverbanks on Thursdays. Chateau du Rivau is enchanting for adults and children alike whilst Villandry boasts exceptionally beautiful gardens. This is but a sample of the many Chateaus you may choose to visit.

In complete contrast to the oppulent chateaux are the fascinating cave dwellings which can be visited at 'La Vallee Troglodytique des Goupillieres' between Tours and Chinon and at the 'Ethni'Cite', St.Remy-sur-Creuse, close to Descartes.

Further attractions to occupy all the family can be found at the Zoo Parc Beauval, Futuroscope (just outside Poitiers) and in the regional capital of Tours.

“Simply Awesome!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2015

We had a wonderful two week family holiday. Dave and Patience were outstanding hosts providing helpful first hand information on the local area. The area was wonderfully quiet, just what we all wanted, but there was plenty to do from cycling to badminton to visiting local restaurants for gorgeous food and live music. The gite was perfect; spacious, clean and well equipped. For a family who don't visit the same place twice, on the drive home we were all agreed that we are in a real dilemma about where we should go next, it was that good! Thank you Dave and Patience for a great holiday; we'll be back...it's just a matter of when!

“Truly idyllic.”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2015

My family and I enjoyed a truly wonderful 10 day break at La Richardière. The area is beautiful and peaceful with tranquil countryside all around and pretty local villages. The locals were very welcoming and included our children in the Easter egg hunt, there seems to be a lot of local fun to take part in. We had fantastic day trips to Loches for the Pirate weekend and the weekly market, I particularly enjoyed the acoustic a Capella singing in the old church at the top of the hill in the medieval town area in Loches. The zoo parc Beauval was a delight, especially the pandas! The children particularly enjoyed that trip. The gite itself was attractively and sympathically renovated, the interior was cool and comfortable in the unexpected April heat, a wood burning stove was a lovely addition. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. We had everything we needed for an extremely relaxing, happy holiday! The children loved having bikes to use and vast open spaces to play in. Finally, a word has to be said about the hosts, although new to La Richardière, The Brown family were extreemly welcoming and attentive and very knowledgeable about the local area, where to go, what to do, what was on. I really wanted to stay for the moules and frite evening at the restaurant in Grand Pressigny and the Irish bands with fish and chips in July sounds like a great night out! This is one of the best holidays we have had, we can't wait to visit again!

Owner's reply: Thank you for adding to the atmosphere here at La Richardiere. It was a pleasure to provide accommodation for your family.
